\"In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.\" -Einstein

I think you would agree Jack. Thank you for your service, and for your kindness, love, and warmth. We are bereft without you.

I watched the parade thinking of you. I honor you Jack, and all of those who serve this country.

I miss you a lot today Jack. Byrd had a baby last Monday. 7lbs. 10oz. His name is Julius Meriwether Chaskes. I bet you'd have fun with that.

Bobby is taking the bar tomorrow. He has been studying like a mad man. He will be fine. Still nothing on the job front unfortunately, but he will focus on that again once this is behind him. I wish you could read the recommendations he's received from his professors.

I took my third CPA exam about a week and a half ago. I don't think I passed it. The next one is on Aug. 26th. I still have to wrap up school before I can get started on that which is stressful. But I start work at PwC in Sept. so that's exciting.

Also, we got Clara out! That was a feat. And we're selling the house. Byrd has already fund a place in Queens near Susan and Howie. Bobby and I are looking in Brooklyn.

Bobby and I have a trip to Europe planned for when all this nuttiness is behind us. I wish you were here to tell us about the important things we must not miss.

I love you.

I never knew Mr Jack Wheeler personally, I only knew him through Rick Atkinson's The Long Gray Line -West Point's Class of 1966. It hurt to read that he had passed on like so many others before him. I believe he fought a good fight and the soldiers on the wall would always be grateful for the journey he went through to remember them. God Bless America and her Soldiers always.

Such a generous and contributing soul should not have been taken this way. Surely he now resides in a mansion of the Lord.

He loved West Point more than most of us.

Appreciated his friendship even though I disagreed with many of his air supremacy arguments. We have lost a real influential classmate.

He and I were Beast roommates along with Denny Loftheim and Tom Hayes. Always the one who had his Plebe poop memorized before any of us! And to leave us this way is beyond comprehension. He will be deeply missed.
Be Thou at Peace, Old Friend!

Jack was one of a kind. Generous with his time and always willing to give his assistance more than anyone I know. Our class has lost a gem. Kirsten and I will miss him dearly.

I never met Jack, but have been heart broken that someone killed such a wonderful man. This world needs more people like Jack.

I never met Jack, but all of his accomplishments and pictures of him smiling happily show he was a wonderful man. Rest in Peace. You are in my prayers.

Jack enlisted me for the VVLP and I have been grateful to him since the first day. Grateful to have known John and grateful for the experiences. He had more than a wish to enrich the lives of others it was a personal drive. He leaves me and all of us "VVLPers" proud to have been his fried and sadden that we have lost him. Thank you John for the wall you created. Someone of merit once said "walls make great neighbors". Your wall made that great neighborhood for all Vietnam Vets. We Thank you.
